Homestead Job Corps Center’s (HJCC) Community Relations Council coordinated a “collaborative clean-up” of the corner of SW 285 Street and SW 127 Avenue. The clean-up began at 8:30am on Wednesday, July 29 and was completed by the afternoon. Involved in the efforts were students and staff from HJCC’s Carpentry trade and Building Construction Technology trade, Commissioner Moss’ Roving Crew and the Miami-Dade Police Department.
Frank Balzebre, from the office of Mayor Carlos Gimenez and Chairperson of HJCC Community Relations Council coordinated the group. “There was a great need to clean the area of overgrown brush for the safety and benefit of residents and drivers in the South Dade community”. “The HJCC students are eager to work and give back to the community. This was a terrific experience for them as they worked side by side with the Miami-Dade Police Department’s Officer Eddie Smith and Commissioner Dennis C. Moss’ Roving Crew Supervisor David Harris and Roving Crew Commission Aide Joshua Jordan” stated Balzebre.
“The students and faculty at Homestead Job Corps continue to make valuable contributions to this community,” said Commissioner Dennis C. Moss. “Some of the most important work begins at home. It was a pleasure to join them and make such a big difference in a short period of time around the campus.”
